Brian, Nickira, and I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the Big Brothers Big Sisters holiday party at Botanica last weekend.
We saw Thunderdog, Santa Claus, and Mrs. Claus. We also did crafts and played bingo. It was a lot of fun and Nickira received several presents.
Thunder dog gave Nickira a gigantic stuffed dog, almost the same size as her.
Santa gave Nickira a present and we also got a photo with him.
Here’s Nickira with her giant dog and other Christmas loot.
She loved her dog. She got the biggest stuffed dog out of all the kid there. That was the absolute highlight of the day.
The dog was so soft and comfortable that she promptly fell asleep on it on the way home.
Here she is completely out. She was so out of it that she ended up drooling on the dog. LOL. And then we finally had to wake her up when we arrived at her house.
I didn’t get to see Nickira this weekend because we enrolled our new puppy Saki (more on that later) in puppy school and yesterday was her first day. I’m hoping I’ll be able to spend some time with her on Thursday so we can give her Christmas present to her.
We missed the Big Brothers Big Sisters Christmas party last year so this was my first one and I didn’t really know what to expect. It was really cool actually and we had a great time. Nickira liked it so much she said that we have to go again next year.
We will most definitely be back!
